Abstract

Integration of information systems is essential to organizations. Therefore, it is necessary to make different technologies interoperate. Extensible Markup Language (XML) is often used for data exchange because it is self-descriptive and platform-independent. However, XML is a verbose language which may bring problems related to the size of documents. This work proposes two new approaches for XML data compression and compares our solutions with three algorithms: WAP Binary Extensible Markup Language (WBXML), Xmill and Efficient XML Interchange (EXI). The comparison is based on compression rate and compression time for files with different sizes.
